South Korean smartphone giant Samsung, which has been dependent on Google's Android OS has since long time been planning to bring its own OS into the market. Although the company's first Tizen-powered smartphone was very close to reaching the market earlier this year, the company failed to bring it due to the lack of interest of its career partners. However, that wouldn't discourage the company from building the phone yet again.
We already have been hearing about the Samsung Z smartphone for a long time now and the latest rumor about the phone suggests that the it will launch sometime later in Q3 this year and it's the Russians who will be getting the chance to buy it first.
Earlier this week, Samsung Electronics disclosed the Samsung Z at the Tizen Developer Conference 2014, which was held in San Francisco from June 2 to 4 running right into Apple's WWDC. The Samsung Z, being the first commercial Tizen phone, runs what is the final consumer version of Tizen, which hasn't been shown to the public yet as all prototype devices ran test versions of the OS.
But one of the tech blogs called TheHandheldBlog, has been able to show us how the Tizen OS featuring Samsung Z would be like when it will launch. The site has posted a full-on first-look sort of video on its site which is pretty simple and self-explanatory.
If you are not aware, the Tizen operating system is based on the Linux kernel and as an open-source code, the Linux kernel and Tizen operating system allow programmers to access them for free to develop their own applications and other software.
The new Samsung Z will feature a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED screen and a 2.3-GHz Quad-core processor. The Samsung Z is designed to reduce the turn-on time and ensure smooth multitasking. It is also mounted with a fingerprint recognition sensor.
